La Poubelle (in progress)
La Poubelle is the story of a young hunger artist and her two half-siblings. As she lies in bed voluntarily starving herself to death, Z speaks of the horrors of the world in her own poetic yet realistic language. She adopts her own philosophical, artistic, and political stance against the state of things, embodying a disillusioned yet (in her way) determined youth. Her siblings, both complacent and egoistic, nevertheless feel a need to help their sister. On the day they decide to take action and end her strike, they are surprised by their sister’s act of defeat.
This film raises questions about the role of the young artist in society today. Without proposing a “message” or“solution” La Poubelle opens into the world of three very different people bound together by a blood tie: their father. They lead separate lives with separate goals, yet one sibling’s choice affects the group profoundly.
The film functions of the level of symbolism and portrays the mysterious life-flow that permeates the everyday when interrupted by an act of defiance.
Featuring Pierre Ensergueix, Zoé Besmond de Senneville, Julien Hamelin & Alexandra Zelman-Doring
